From Prostitute to Bride: Speaking Purpose, Destiny, and Life

Some years ago I became concerned about many of my friends and family and the community that were surrounding me at the time. I was unsure of how healthy their hearts and lifestyles were becoming. I began praying for each of them on a weekly basis.

Then one night God blessed me with a dream that would help me. In the dream I was walking along with a person next to me, and then I saw about 40 to 50 people that were in the community of my friends. They were all grouped together, but they would change back and forth from being a group to this singular woman who looked very scandalously dressed, she had lipstick all over her face, and was intoxicated trying to hold herself together. I didn’t know exactly how to approach the situation, but the person standing next to me (who had a wonderful presence) said prophesy over her.  I immediately opened my mouth and musical looking strings with written words on them came out to impact this prostitute looking woman.  The words on these strings coming out of my mouth said purpose, destiny, and life.  As those words hit the shifting woman she began to change into a beautiful, golden glowing, bright complexioned woman that was dressed in beautiful warrior clothes. I then woke up from the dream.

In John 5:19 scripture shows me how important it is to go speak and do what the Father is saying and showing. I also know that 1 Corinthians 14:1 says, “Follow the way of love and eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit especially prophecy.” So, in my prayers that day I began to speak words of purpose, destiny, and life over each and every person in that community.  When I saw those people in my days I began to ask God for words of purpose, destiny, and life to speak and give them.  Then over time I began to see each of them start to transform into who they truly are. I was also surprised by how much more openness and favor I began to have with each of them because I was so life giving in my words.  I could fill this blog overflowing by how many testimonies of great break through, transformation, and restoration came following the solutions that dream gave. In one particular testimony a friend of mine slipped back into doing drugs from a divorce. Every time I would see him I would give him prophetic words I heard God tell me about his purpose and destiny. After doing this for almost a year he got deliverance from drug addiction, got a much better job, got back into doing worship at church, and got totally restored in his marriage.

During this same time I really grew in the power of prophecy and being aware of my words. In Ezekiel 37 we see the Lord Himself tell his servant to prophecy life into those dead bones. In Proverbs 16:24 it says, “Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.” I want everyone to know who is reading these words that you have the same awesome grace and power to bring transformation to people living more like a prostitute into being an incredible warrior bride just like Jesus did. You have been given the same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead. You have been given the ability to let your words and Gods spirit bring life and transformation to people all around you. You are a child of God that was born to hear your Heavenly Father and be a game changer to all who need it. – Josh Hollingsworth
